If you grew up in the 80’s, you will probably remember this decade fondly for the cartoons it spawned, such as He-Man and The Masters of The Universe, Transformers but also, sadly, Scrappy-Doo too. It’s decade that also saw the release of the much-loved and fondly remembered cartoon Dungeons & Dragons, which ran for 3 season and a total of 27 episodes. Well, in this day and age where anything is ripe for exploitation, the plucky kids from this show have been reimagined as live action characters in a new advertisement for Renault, the car manufacturer. And, I have to davit, it looks amazing!
Including all your favourites from the Dungeon Master too the evil Venger, it’s a lavish production but very much in keeping with the original series. Except, this advert does see our brave adventurers returning to Earth; something they never achieved in the original series. A fact that still sits uncomfortably with me today. Although, there was a scripted final episode – in which Venger would have been revealed to have been the Dungeon Masters son – and for an added bonus, you can read it here. And, watch the advertisement below. Now, I wonder how long it’ll take before Hollywood sees the and realises it could make a kick-ass film?
